Summary: It might insane to wait for a change in your life and your family and do nothing to bring about that change. We need a navigation system to bring about change. God needs your action to launch real change.

WAITING FOR MY CHANGE… (doing nothing)

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com

Proverbs 22:28 Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.

HAVE YOU EVER LOST SIGHT OF THE GOAL? WE NEED UNDERSTANDING AND WISDOM… BEYOND HERE… WHAT MAKES YOU THINK --- IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY HERE --- THAT YOU WILL BE HAPPY OVER THERE? THE ISSUE OF THE HEART IS THE HEART OF THE ISSUE.

I read where two young boys were out camping with the Boy Scouts. The troop broke up in small groups and hiked all day. Two boys were chosen to hike to the south. They ate breakfast and hiked all day. Before dark the boys panicked. They were lost. They might die in the woods? In the panic the boys decided to rest. As they sat at the foot of the tree they noticed MOSS. They said: THE MOSS GROWS ON THE NORTH SIDE OF THE TREE. So they started rushing back to camp. They knew they had traveled south so to return to the camp they would simply travel north. Every now and then the two boys would look for the moss and soon they were back safe in the camp.

OBSTACLES AND PROBLEMS ARE WHAT WE SEE WHEN WE LOOSE SIGHT OF THE GOAL… FEAR, DOUBT AND WORRY DISTORT REALITY. IF IT IS OVER OUR HEADS --- WE MUST BY FAITH UNDERSTAND IT IS UNDER GOD’S FEET. GOD IS IN CONTROL.

Your attitudes, thought patterns, habits, behavior, and words BUILD WHO YOU ARE. Most of us never ACT BY FAITH we REACT TO CIRCUMSTANCES and EMOTIONS… Grow up… You do not have to lose your direction.

HOW CAN WE NAVIGATE WHEN WE CAN’T UNDERSTAND WHERE WE ARE?

Isaiah 65:24 And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.

I once read a story about a minister traveling after a crusade. A ministry friend had a beautiful twin engine aircraft. He had agreed after the services to fly the famous minister to the next appointment that night for the next appointment in the morning. It was a very dark night, no light of the moon or stars, none. The flight was wonderful. The people were visiting in the fancy aircraft. All of a sudden about mid-flight every gauge quit working and every light went dark. The pilot was visibly upset. It was so dark that the passengers could not see one another. Every instrument was not working and had the gages been working no one could see them. Fear started to grip their hearts. The pilot slowly lowered the altitude. They dropped below the clouds and it was still very dark. They were in the middle of nowhere and a street light could be seen every now and then. The Preacher started praying and asked God to help them by faith. Right in front of the twin engine plane a huge spot light and run way lights illuminated the path for the plane’s emergency landing. The runway lights guided them to safety. The plane landed and pulled up to the small tower. The two men in the tower were amazed the plane seemed to come out of nowhere? How did that plane know where the airport was? The men explained the little airport had just recently installed the new runway lights. The pilot from the plane asked the two men how did you know to turn the runway lights on as our radio was dead? The man from the tower said I am a pilot and I was telling my neighbor about the new lighting systems we had installed. So I drove him down here and was showing him how the new lighting system worked. He went on to say we don’t have the inspection and paperwork approved to use them.

God is so good. GOD HAS A PLAN. God is moving even before we understand our needs? God will answer us before we even call to him. While we are still talking about our needs, God goes ahead and answers our prayers!

GOD’S PLAN IS THAT WE OVERCOME ALL THE OBSTACLES UNTIL WE FIND THE HEART OF GOD OUR POTENTIAL!

I AM WAITING --- PASSIVE WAITING FOR PIE TO FALL OUT OF THE SKY… I AM WAITING FOR GOD TO CHANGE ME… I AM JUST WAITING UNTIL MY CHANGE COMES? BE HONEST? DO YOU NEED TO CHANGE? WHAT DO YOU NEED TO CHANGE?

It is pure insanity to think we can stay the same and keep doing things the same old same old way and expect a different outcome?

Job 14:14 If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.

Hey, my friend, ARE YOU WAITING FOR YOUR CHANGE? CHANGE ME, O, GOD? Have you ever identified what it is in your life that you need to change? BEFORE YOU CAN HAVE A PROGNOSIS to correct your problem, you must have a DIAGNOSIS of what is wrong?
